wrong before on the pope. but the pope, mika, why don't you confirm. >> pope benedict is going to be stepping down as head of the catholic church. he apparently made this statement within the past few hours in latin. during a small canonization event saying he doesn't have the strength anymore. once again, pope benedict will be resigning as head of the catholic church. we'll have much more on this story as the details come in. we are told that this will be happening fairly rapidly. >> they're talking about february the 28th. that he'll be stepping down. and of course, it was pope benedict who stepped in and became pope after pope john paul ii, the iconic pope of the 20th century, stepped down. of course, pope john paul ii had been pope since 1979. and so, of course, his impact felt not only in the religious world but also the political world. pope benedict, though, never really, of course, given the chance to emerge from the shadows. and it seems that for a good bit of his time, he was dogged by allegations that came through the child abuse scandal throughout certainly before h
a new title and a new look. the vatican announced that pope benedict xvi will keep his name but will be called pope emeritus or the roman pontiff emeritus after he steps down as leader of the roman catholic church on thursday. benedict is also going to change his wardrobe slightly. so much of this is about pomp and circumstance. that's what makes a lot of organized religion and he is no longer going to be wearing the traditional red shoes, opting instead for brown, and he will be dressing in a simple white cassock. what do the changes mean? raymond is "outfront" tonight. it's the pomp and circumstance that can be so fascinating. i notice some people may say these changes are insignificant, color of the shoes, whatever, guys, but that's really significant, right? the red shoes? >> absolutely. look, everything in the catholic church particularly the things we are going to see together over the next couple of weeks, they all mean something and they're all tied to history. those red shoes go back hundreds of years. what they symbolize is the willingness to bleed, to suffer marty
in the church may wear those red shoes. so when benedict is no longer the pope, he has to give up the shoes but remember, john paul ii wore the red shoes for a couple weeks early on in his pontificate, then wore brown ones. the pope can really do what he wants. he's the supreme pontiff, the supreme ruler of the church and he kind of can make the rules himself and benedict made these himself today. >> interesting. although as you said, raymond, i say this, you know, can't change the doctrine, right? you do everything. >> can't do that. he can protect the doctrine but not amend it. >> let me talk about one other thing. he wears a ring, fisherman's ring. describe it to me and why he's going to actually destroy it. it looks kind of fluorescent green or yellow on his finger. >> now, this goes back to 1265. pope clement iv referenced this ring in one of his letters to a nephew. it is the sign and seal of his office. when you look closely, you are seeing a picture there, it is a bas relief of st. peter leaning over the edge of the boat pulling in fish. this shows and indicates that the pope, whoev
and we're just getting started here on this monday morning. pope benedict xvi making more changes to the vatican rules. why this is so significant and why he is stepping down. a little more information on that as well. bill: look at the drama in these images here. a dangerous crash over the weekend in daytona. a car flying, a wheel actually flying into the stand, injurying fans, some critically. we have a live update how they're doing. martha: we have a child involved there. we'll tell you the latest. president obama turning to the states for support to put the country back on track. >> i'm looking for good partners because while nobody in this room sees eye-to-eye on everything, we know that when we work together democrats and republicans, north, south, east and west, we can accomplish so much more than we can on our own. and we got onesies. sometimes miracles get messy. so we use tide free. no perfumes or dyes for her delicate skin. brad. not it. not it. just kidding. that's our tide. what's yours? . ... at tyco integrated security, we consider ourselves business optimizers. how
the retirement of pope benedict, the vatican this morning revealing decisions about his future. we've just learned the pope will be called pope ameritus. when addressing him, he would call him, his holiness, he will wear the white cape but not the one he wore as pope. they will be replaced with brown shoes. i'm joined by a father of the diocese. thank you for joining us. >> thank you, chris. >> there were allegations by priests and former priests. church scholars say there has not been this much drama surrounding a conclave since 1800s. another father says it looks like amateur hour s is it in. >> there hasn't been this much controversy but it makes for interesting conversation can, doesn't it it? >> it makes interesting conversation but how might they impact the reduction in the past? >> the number of cardinals who can vote, and so now the controversy swirling around cardinal mahony. will he stay or will he go or recuse himself? >> he got support from a few people that have suggested that this can be separate. in fact, it was cardinal o'brien, one of the people suggested if you make one d
of work for pope benedict. the has pledged quote unconditional reverence and oh beadance. he gave an unexpected speech today, in which he encouraged the cardinals to work together harmoniously. the cardinals will meet monday. the pope leaves the palace for the last time as pope at 5:00 tonight at 8:00 pm he is officially retired. we'll be back after the break. you're going to want to stay with us. it's a pretty, little town, with an ugly reputation. >> you just google harrison, what will come up is the klan. i'm all for that. >> the kkk doesn't speak for us at all. it speaks against god. (vo) which side will win the soul of harrison? >> we're never gonna move. they think this world isn't big enough for the both of them. but we assure you - it is. bites. little greatness. when many soles pass through the most trodden areas of your home your vacuum doesn't always pick up what's left behind. only the resolve easy clean system has foam power to stop dirt in its tracks. it penetrates deep within your carpet removing 3 times more dirt than vacuuming alone. leaving the bu
of the weakest people in its care, its children. i think many people who are admirers of benedict and were admirers of john paul ii accept the view that the church should have moved more aggressively. you cannot simply, as the church has done in recent decades, move priests from diocese to diocese in the hopes that somehow or another the problem will go away. i think that the new pope would be very wise, particularly in the west, to speak out and argue that this is entirely a new day and that the church will become more christlike. >> you know, mika, i don't really know -- nobody knows why the pope is stepping down. we can take him at his word. unfortunately, taking the catholic church at its word over the past decade or so on a variety of scandals has not been what journalists should have done. i think some questions have to be asked here. he stepped down, the first pope to step down in centuries. and again, i love the church. i have a lot of connections to the church. and i just -- this is less about the church than it is about reporters and journalists who are covering this story. i thi
